MSI – ‘Official Gaming Partner’ for ESL Pro League Season 11 and 12March 2, 2020
[Taipei, Taiwan] – MSI, a world leading gaming brand, has extended its partnership with ESL, the world’s largest esports company, for ESL Pro League Seasons 11 and 12. As the Official Gaming Partner of ESL Pro League, MSI will sponsor Seasons 11 and 12 with cutting-edge gaming hardware, owning the laptop, PC, including motherboards and graphic cards, and monitor categories, and will work to captivate fans through engaging onsite activities.
As part of the partnership, MSI will again revive the popular Mystery Box Segment, where ESL talent will quiz two audience members with fun esports trivia questions onsite at the ESL Pro League Season 11 Finals in Denver, CO, on April 10-12 and subsequent Season 12 Finals. Whoever answers these questions correctly will then receive a “mystery box,” containing items provided by the MSI team. Prizes awarded in previous years included high-powered motherboards, graphics cards, and more.
The MSI Gaming Arena (MGA) will also return in 2020. Teams from North America, Europe, APAC, and CIS will have the opportunity to battle it out during online competition to become the top team in their region. From there, the top four teams will be invited to compete in front of a live audience at the MGA Grand Finals at the ESL Pro League Season 12 Finals later this year. The MGA Grand Finals will also be livestreamed on MSI’s social media accounts and official website.
The growth of Esports as a whole continues to reel in new and old players in the business. Old and original business partners within the industry are creating new ways and even reinventing old areas to participate and show support for the growing industry.
“It has been amazing to partner with ESL. Our extended partnership in 2020 guarantees global players not merely another year of world-class gaming events but also incredible gamer-driven innovations that will reshape their gaming experiences,” says Sam Chern, VP Marketing, MSI.
